My 10 month old daughter still has 3-4 feeds each night, and while I don't mind feeding her, I'm always made to feel that I shouldn't be feeding her at night anymore. I always get told that they don't "need" night feeds once they're eating 3 meals a day. So I just feel that I'm doing something wrong, because every other baby seems to be sleeping 7 to 7 and mine isn't.
I can't sleep train her, because I also have a 3 year old, who is also a very light sleeper and will wake up if his sister cries. He also still doesn't sleep through at nearly 3, although no longer fed.
It's just so frustrating when I get told by family members and friends that "MY baby slept 12 hours by that age", and I just feel like I'm doing something wrong as a mother :-(
It seems that bottlefed babies are always the better sleepers, so I wonder if I have caused their sleeping problems by breastfeeding too much or too long :-(
